Misdiagnosis Claims

What are Misdiagnosis claims?

Medical misdiagnosis can have serious implications for patients. An illness or condition may be missed completely and the benefits of early treatment can be lost if the problem remains undiagnosed or is misdiagnosed.

In some cases, permanent damage can be caused and in serious conditions, a misdiagnosis could prove fatal. If you believe you have suffered injury, loss and damage as a result of a misdiagnosis then you may be entitled to compensation and you should speak with a solicitor to have a confidential conversation about your situation.

Types of Misdiagnosis Claims

Some of the types of claims that may occur are the following:

  • Delayed cancer diagnosis
  • Undiagnosed infections
  • Undiagnosed fractures
  • Misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary surgery
  • Misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary treatment
  • Misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary medication
